Histogram
The histogram is a graph that allows you to judge the brightness of
an image, and you can display it in the p, Tv, Av, and M modes
to confirm the brightness while shooting. The greater the bias
toward the left in the graph, the darker the image. The greater the
bias toward the right, the brighter the image. If the image is too
dark, adjust the exposure compensation to a positive value.
Similarly, adjust the exposure compensation to a negative value if
the image is too bright (p. 75).

Night Display
When shooting in dark conditions, the camera automatically
brightens the LCD monitor or viewfinder to suit the brightness of the
subject, making it easier to frame the subject.
* Noise will appear andthe movements of the subject will appear irregular in
the LCD monitor, The recorded image, however,will not be affected, The
brightness of the image displayed in the monitor and the brightness of the

Using the Custom
White
Balance
You can set a custom white balance to obtain the optimal setting for
the shooting conditions by having the camera evaluate an object,
such as a piece of white paper or cloth that you wish to establish as
the standard white color.
In particular, take a custom white balance reading for the following
situations that are difficult for the _ (Auto) setting to detect correctly.
• Shooting close-ups
• Shooting subjects of monotone color (such as sky, sea or forest)
• Shooting with a peculiar source of light (such as a mercury-vapor lamp)

OYou are recommended to set the shooting mode to p and
the exposure compensation setting to zero (-+0) before setting
a custom white balance. The correct white balance may not
be obtained when the exposure setting is incorrect (image
appears completely black or white).
• Shoot with the same settings as when reading the white
balance data. If the settings differ, the optimal white balance
may not be set. In particular, the following should not be
changed.
- ISO Speed
- Flash: Setting the flash to on or off is recommended. If the
flash fires when reading the white balance data with the
flash set to Auto or Auto with Red- Eye Reduction, make
sure that you also use the flash when you shoot.
• Since the white balance data cannot be read in Stitch Assist
mode, preset the white balance in another shooting mode
beforehand.
• The camera will retain the custom white balance setting that
you record even if you reset the camera to the default settings
(p. 34).

Never mix new batteries together with batteries that have been used in other
devices.
The par_ally used batteries may leak.
• Be careful to load the batteries with their positive (_) and negative (_) ends
in the right direction.
• Never mix batteries of different types or from different manufacturers. All four
batteries should be identical.
• Before inserting the batteries, wipe the battery terminals well with a dry cloth.
Oil from one'sskin or dirtiness may cause a considerable reduction in the number of
recordable images or reduce usage time,
• Battery performance deteriorates at low temperatures, and the battery icon []
may display more quickly.
If youare using the camera in cold areas and batteries are runningdownfaster then
they should, you may he able to restore performance by placingbatteriesin an inner
pocketto warm them up priorto use.
Be careful that you don't put the batteries into a pocket together with a metal key
chain or other metallic objects, as these objects may cause batteries to shortcircuit.
if you do not plan to use the camera for a long time, remove the batteries from
the camera and store them in a safe place.
Batteries may leak and damage the camera if left installed during prolonged periods of
non-use,
Never use damaged batteries or batteries whose outer seal is completely or
partially missing or peeled off, as there is risk that such batteries may leak,
overheat, or burst.
Always check the seals on store-bought batteries before loading them, as some batteries
may come with dofec_ve seals. Do not use batteries with defective seals.

• Memory cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not bend them, apply
force to them, or subject them to shocks or vibration.
Do not attempt to disassemble or alter the memory card.
Do not allow dirt, water or foreign objects to contact the terminals on the back of
the card. Do not touch the terminals with your hands or metal objects.
• Do not peel away the odginal label on the memory card or cover it with another
label or sticker.
• When writing on the memory card, do not use a pencil or ball-point pen. Only
use a soft point pen (e.g. felt-tip pen).
• Do not use or store memory cards in the following locations.
- Locationssubject to dust or sand
- Locations subject to high humidity and Ngh temperatures
• Since some or all of the data recorded on the memory card may be corrupted or
erased by electrical noise, static electricity or card/camera malfunction, making
a backup copy of important data is recommended.
• Please note that formatting (initializing) an memory card erases all data,
including protected images and other file types.
• You are recommended to use memory cards that have been formatted in your
camera.
- The card supplied withthe camera may be used withoutfurther formatting.
- When the camera is malfunctioning, a corrupted memory card might be the cause.
Reformatting the memory card may solve the problem.

operate correctly in this camera. When that happens, reformat the memory card with
this camera.
If formatting in the camera does not work properly, turn the camera off and reinsert the memory card. Then turn the camera back on and format again.
If the LCD monitor (or viewfinder) displays the Date/Time menu when
you turn on the camera, this means that the date battery has run down
and the clock has stopped running. Please purchase a replacement
battery (lithium coin battery CR1220) and install it as follows.
The date battery is preinstalled
at the factory and may
therefore expire earlier than its rated lifespan after the camera
has been purchased.

and settings.
• Movie data is excluded.
• At low temperatures, the battery performance may diminish and the
low battery icon may appear very rapidly. In such a case, the
performance can be improved by warming the batteries in your
pocket before use.
Test Conditions
Shooting: Normal temperature (23 °C + 2 °C/73 °F + 3.6 °F), normal
relative humidity (50% + 20%), altemating max. wide angle
and max. telephoto shots at 30 second intervals with the
flash fired once every two shots and the camera power
turned off after every tenth shot. Power is left off for a
sufficient amount of time*, then the power is turned back
on and the testing procedure is repeated.
• A Canon-brand memory card is used.
* Until the battery returns to normal temperature
Playback: Normal temperature (23 °C + 2 °C/73 °F + 3.6 °F), normal
relative humidity (50% + 20%), continuous playback at 3
